  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Starting in spring opener

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said Paddack is scheduled to start the Twins' spring opener Friday versus the University of Minnesota, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Paddack threw approximately 55 pitches Sunday in a live session and is expected to work about two innings in the exhibition contest. After making a full recovery from his May 2022 Tommy John surgery, Paddack returned to action for the Twins in late September and struck out eight while allowing three earned runs across five innings between his two relief appearances during the regular season, then struck out six over 3.2 scoreless frames during Minnesota's postseason run. Now nearly two years removed from elbow surgery and entering the second season of a three-year, $12.5 million deal, Paddack will be vying for a spot in Minnesota's Opening Day rotation this spring.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Strong in bulk relief

    Paddack (1-0) earned the win Saturday against the Rockies. He allowed two hits while striking out four over three scoreless innings.

    Paddack entered the game after one inning, replacing Emilio Pagan, and fired off three scoreless frames for his first win of 2023.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Returns from injured list

    The Twins reinstated Paddack (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    Paddack has been on the shelf all season while recovering from the Tommy John procedure -- the second of his career -- he underwent in May 2022. He made three rehab starts in the minors, giving up four runs over 9.2 innings. Paddack figures to initially serve in a multi-inning relief role during Minnesota's postseason run, and he will likely rejoin the rotation in 2024. The Twins optioned Josh Winder to Triple-A St. Paul and transferred Jovani Moran (forearm) to the 60-day injured list as corresponding moves.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Strikes out six in rehab outing

    Paddack (elbow) struck out six over four innings and gave up two earned runs on four hits and no walks in a rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Wichita.

    In his second rehab appearance as he gears up for a return from Tommy John surgery, Paddack tossed 58 pitches and relayed after the game that he feels "outstanding," per Paddack was scheduled to throw a bullpen session later this week before heading to Triple-A St. Paul, where he's expected to make his next rehab appearance in a relief role. If all goes well during the upcoming appearance, Paddack could be activated from the 60-day injured list as soon as Sept. 22 to fill a multi-inning role out of the Minnesota bullpen.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Sits at 95 mph in first rehab start

    Paddack (elbow) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks and struck out four across 2.2 innings Wednesday in his first rehab appearance with Single-A Fort Myers.

    According to Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Paddack's fastball sat around 95 miles per hour, and he induced five whiffs on six swings while throwing his changeup. Paddack is nearly 16 months removed from Tommy John surgery and presumably will require at least a couple more rehab appearances before being activated from the 60-day injured list. The Twins could use him as a multi-inning reliever late in the season.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Rehab assignment coming

    Paddack (elbow) said Tuesday that he'll begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Fort Myers on Sept. 6, John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Paddack has spent all season on the 60-day injured list while working his way back from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in May 2022. He's been facing live hitters since the start of August and is set to throw a three-inning sim game at the team's complex in Florida this week. There's been no indication on how long Paddack's assignment could last, but there's a chance the 27-year-old righty is able to rejoin the Minnesota bullpen in a multi-inning relief role in time for the team's playoff push.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Building up to three innings

    Paddack (elbow) is expected to throw a three-inning, 50-pitch simulated game this week at the Twins' spring training complex in Florida, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    After undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May 2022, Paddack is in the process of building his arm back up. He'll add an inning to his workload this week after he threw two innings of live batting practice last week. Paddack, Twins trainer Nick Paparesta and the right-hander's surgeon, Dr. Keith Meister, are scheduled to discuss the next steps after the three-inning sim game. If both Meister and Paparesta are satisfied with how Paddack has come along in his recovery from surgery, the 27-year-old could be cleared for what would likely be an extended minor-league rehab assignment in September.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Faces live hitters

    Paddack (elbow) is facing live hitters at the team's Fort Myers, Fla. complex this week, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    He still doesn't have clearance to appear in a game, however. The Twins haven't ruled him out for returning this season, but the odds seem long given that he'll need several weeks of a rehab assignment. At least if he can appear in some minor-league or instructional league games, he'll get a head start on returning next season. The right-hander underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May 2022.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Gearing up to face live hitters

    Paddack (elbow) is on track to begin facing live hitters in mid-August, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Paddack is about 14 months removed from his second career Tommy John surgery and has been throwing bullpen sessions without issue since the beginning of June. The 27-year-old right-hander could potentially be an option for the Twins' pitching staff sometime in September if all continues to go smoothly with his throwing program.
